Motor inhibition in developmental coordination disorder
People with development coordination disorder (DCD) are less efficient in two facets of motor inhibition, both action restraint and action cancellation, the latter of which has not previously been described.
Why this matters
DCD is a neurodevelopmental condition that is attributed to both motor and cognitive deficiencies, and this study demonstrates that multiple mechanisms of motor inhibition contribute to this disorder.
